June 6: THE BENEFITS OF LIVING IN A SUMMIT VISTA APARTMENT HOME
Making the decision to sell your family home and embark on apartment life may seem a bit daunting. Not only are you leaving behind years of memories and familiarity, but you may also be entering unfamiliar waters simply by moving to an apartment. However, rest assured, apartment life at Summit Vista definitely has its benefits.
The number one benefit of living in a Summit Vista apartment home is the financial aspect. For starters, the cost of living in an apartment is generally cheaper than a mortgage. That’s especially true when you include other financial components often associated with home ownership, such as utility costs, insurances, upkeep, and repairs. Additionally, Summit Vista offers an innovative financial structure that allows residents to comfortably afford more than just the cost of living, but also all the added amenities and services provided within the community.
Another benefit of apartment life at Summit Vista is living maintenance-free. Not only does it benefit you financially to no longer worry about most of the day-to-day home-care responsibilities, but it also saves you from some of the more tedious chores and stresses. For instance, when it snows, no need to shovel. We’ll do it for you. When the yard needs tending, we’ll take care of it. The peace of mind associated with living in our apartment homes is liberating to your time, your wallet, and your back.
Unlike houses, Summit Vista apartment homes are built with a community of specific amenities and services in mind, such as on-campus pools, fitness centers, health care services, restaurants, convenience stores, clubhouses, special-interest studios, etc. Even though you could live in close proximity to many of these elements, or even have them built into your house, the financial obligation would not be as easy. Apartment living at Summit Vista truly proves to be a convenient and rewarding arrangement.
Although homeowners often invest in some form of security system, it often comes at a pricey expense and requires frequent updates and numerous considerations. Summit Vista also invests in the overall safety of its residents by providing more than just a gated, secure community. By also including round the clock surveillance and on-staff emergency medical personnel that are never more than four minutes away, you’ll have the peace of mind in knowing your safety and health are always a priority.
Another great benefit of apartment life at Summit Vista is the social connections that are easily developed. While a sense of community exists in both rural and suburban areas, the close proximity of residents at Summit Vista—as well as the fact that everyone is in the same stage of life—enhances the probability of creating meaningful, life-long relationships.
This may seem like a repeat of the benefits discussed in the financial and maintenance sections, but that’s simply because it is. The freedom of time, money, and stress that comes from simplifying your life at Summit Vista is worth mentioning more than once. Homeownership comes with a lot of headaches and issues—and making your move to Summit Vista will help you avoid many of these setbacks. Instead of spending your money and time fixing the water heater or repairing the roof, you can use it to travel or pursue your hobbies instead.
Finally, one of the best parts of moving into an apartment home at Summit Vista is the convenience that comes from living so close to everything you could possibly need now—and in the future. With health, diet, fitness, community, activity, and lifestyle features all easily within reach, Summit Vista truly is a community designed to provide you with access to the retirement you always imagined; and the empowered, healthy aging necessary to enjoy every single minute of it.
Overall, the apartment homes at Summit Vista are a great choice for enjoying all the best parts of retirement life. Considering the financial advantages and the many other underlying benefits of living maintenance-free, Summit Vista is the perfect place to call home.
